    Too bad Dreamcatcher amounts to a pastiche of better films like the original "The Thing" and both versions of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." It ransacks the audience's memory warehouse.

    Up against the wit and teamwork of the sparkling TV original, this lame vehicle sputters and fades.

    Most of the movie makes too much sense and is no fun at

    Shyamalan has said he wanted to create the best B-movie ever made, but it fails to be the best C movie of the month. (Stuck or Zohan are better C movies.)

    Despite the tenderness between them, Rose and her perfect younger man have the sickest mother-son relationship since Angela Lansbury and Laurence Harvey in "The Manchurian Candidate" - and Mikey seems just as brainwashed.

    You have to be willing to take a lot of punishment for a few good scares.

    Les Mayfield doesn't know how to stage showdowns and chases so they're exciting or funny.

    Since that gifted, attractive performer is Hayden Panettiere, who has already won a wide following for "Heroes," it's a wonder that the studio hasn't been more heavily promoting her appearance in this decent, genial youth comedy. After all, she does play, ah, Beth Cooper.

    It's like an Indiana Jones movie without rhythm, wit or personality, just a desperate, headlong pace.

    Wild Hogs puts the "ick" into City Slickers.

    Now we get a lazy Eddie in Norbit, a lackluster attempt to make a gross-out romantic comedy. When I say lazy Eddie, I mean imaginatively lazy.

    I managed to get through the biker extravaganza Hell Ride, a narcissistic piece of soft-core porn and macho camp, by mashing it together in my mind with the equally woeful, family-friendly biker comedy "Wild Hogs." After all, both are full of hellions gone to seed.

    Newcomers to the Mike Myers experience will leave this love train early.

    The writer-director, Babak Shokrian, has made an erratic autobiographical film about juggling artistic ambitions and family expectations in L.A.'s close-knit Iranian Jewish community.
